That’s why Holi is celebrated
According to mythology, the demon king Hiranyakashipu considered himself a god. He had enmity with Lord Vishnu. He did not allow anyone to worship him. He used to get people to do his worship. His son was devotee Prahlad, who was a great devotee of Vishnu, but Hiranyakashipu did not like it. He used to stop her a lot, but the devotee did not believe Prahlad. He took all the measures to stop him, but all of them failed. He called his sister Holika to kill him. Holika could not get burnt in the fire. In such a situation, she took Prahlad in her lap and sat in the fire. Lord Vishnu protected Prahlad, but Holika got burnt. It is said that since then this day is celebrated as Holika Dahan and from the next day as playing colors i.e. Holi.
